PARIS: Russian designer Valentine Yudashkin’s virtual fashion show scheduled for Tuesday has been canceled. Paris Fashion WeekThe designer “did not distance himself” from Russia’s war on Ukraine, Ralph Tolitano, head of the Haute Couture and Fashion Federation in France, told AFP on Sunday.
“Our team wants to confirm the status of Valentine Yudashkin,” Tolidano said. Had he set aside his views on the war in Ukraine it would have been difficult to remove his show from the show.
He continued, “They wanted to do a job of intellectual integration to see if Valentine had excluded himself like other artists, but he did not, so I asked him to be removed from the show immediately.”
Valentine Yudashkin, who exhibited his designs for many years in Paris, was one of the inventors of the new military uniform for the Russian army.
The participation of Russian fashion houses “Ulyana Serjinko” and “Yanina Kottur” during the hot coach week is usually determined by a committee that meets “every six months”.
“The next meeting of the committee will be held in June,” Tolidano explained.
Since the start of the war in Ukraine, the luxury and fashion industry has moved far and wide from Moscow, shutting down fashion houses in Russia and providing financial assistance to Ukrainian refugees.
Since the start of Fashion Week on February 28, Tolidano has called on 110 union members to donate to Ukrainian refugees.
He told AFP that Fashion Week was a “reunion” after a two-year health crisis, but that it was “impossible to celebrate it two hours from Paris at a time when brutal practices were being recorded in the area.” “
